``hi there, this is my code .Getting error 'list indices must be integers' please help. console shows B and none thanks``

8. Part of Whole - get_class_average([alice]) should return a number ERROR

here:

``results.append(get_average(students))``

get_average() is only designed to handle a single student, `students` is a list with students, this is why you have a loop to get the individual student

here:

``return average[results]``

average() should be a function call, it calls the function you build earlier:

``````def average(numbers):

total = sum(numbers)

average = float(total) / len(numbers)
return average``````
